I selected enough sticks to make a pair of hanging trees, I tried to go for ones that are quite straight but still had a few bumps to add a bit of character So all I have to do is add the string
Attempt number one involved lots of pieces of string tying the branches to the one above. It is pretty sturdy but there is rather a lot of string and I think this detracts from the shape.
I am not really happy with the result and so I tried a different method,
This time I went for a continuous piece of string, it was much quicker to do and I think I prefer this one out of the two, but I am still not quite happy with it. I will have a chat with Hubby as he often helps me find a simple solution to my crafting dilemmas. If all else fails the sticks will just be put back in log basket and we will pretend this never happened.
These are some of the Pinterest post that inspired this make
That concludes make number 21 with 29 left to go for my 50 makes for Christmas challenge.
Any advice or suggestions on how to improve these would be much appreciated.
